BOSTON -- The Boston Bruins are unveiling a statue of Bobby Orr in his defining moment.

The bronze sculpture depicts the most beloved player in team history flying through the air with his arms outstretched after scoring the goal that clinched the 1970 Stanley Cup championship against the St. Louis Blues. It's scheduled to be unveiled Monday outside the TD Garden.

The ceremony comes on the 40th anniversary of the goal.

Orr is expected to attend along with Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs, Boston Mayor Tom Menino and some of Orr's teammates.

The 600-pound statue is 110 percent of life size. It was designed by renowned sports sculptor Harry Weber. It will be on permanent display outside the arena.

What about the statue of ray Bourque gravy training a cup with Colorado and the bruins fans gravy training that cup off him? That would be an awesome statue.

Yes...spoken like a bitter fan whose Habs will probably be bounced tonight while the B's move on.

Please tell me the Bruins are going to win game 6 in Philly. I don't think I can handle the stress of a Game 7 in Boston in this series.

Last I saw the Habs were up 3-2 on the Pens and the B's were tanking 3-0 vs. Philly.

I'm a long time Bruins fan (sufferer) and I'm sick to my stomach that they're on their way to blowing a 3-0 series lead.

btw,
#4 was the greatest ever to the play the game. Yes, that includes Gretzky.

The guy he scored that against, Glenn Hall, is the toughest MF'er who ever played the game.
